Experian Gazette, which lists registered judgements and insolvency notices has revealed that the largest judgements for the week commencing 30th August 2011 were by ACC Bank plc against a number of Donegal business men.
The bank recorded two separate judgements of €1,164,164.40 and €3,824,877.52 against Kevin Little, Rarooey, Donegal Town; Brendan Malone, 15 the Fairways, Letterkenny; and Paul Doherty, The Brae, Mountcharles.
One judgement of €3,824,877.52 was recorded by ACC Bank plc against Michael McMenamin, Deenan, Ballybofey, Co. Donegal.
There was also one judgement of €1,164,164.50 against businessman Joe Britton, Claret House, 5 Hall Demense, Mountcharles.
The gazette says that the extracts are taken from the Official Register of Judgements. This Register in some cases shows only the fact that the judgements have been registered and their publication does not imply liability to pay on the part of the parties named.
Many of the judgements have been paid or otherwise settled between the parties and as such do not appear on the Register unless and until a satisfaction piece has been filed or an order to vacate the registration has been made by the court and has been notified to the proper Officer. Registered judgements are not in all cases for debts due by the defendants personally.
